Breakthrough Nursing Home Alternative Now Available to Cincinnati Elders and Their Families at Deupree Cottages

CINCINNATI, July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Cincinnati elders and their families can now choose a breakthrough alternative to traditional nursing homes. The new Deupree Cottages on Erie Avenue bordering Hyde Park offer a warm, inviting home supported by 24-hour professional nursing care. Here elders live life on their own terms and follow their own routines rather than a schedule set by the staff. Helping prepare their favorite meal or rummaging in the refrigerator for a snack are the norm here rather than the exception. Episcopal Retirement Homes is the first to bring this breakthrough Person-Centered Care to Cincinnati, a philosophical approach where care givers honor and respect the wishes and desires of the elders they work with.

"The nursing home of the future is here now in Cincinnati," says Doug Spitler, CEO of Episcopal Retirement Homes, a Cincinnati-based not-for-profit company whose expertise is in senior living and elder care services. "We have taken the institution out of care giving with Person-Centered Care. At the Cottages, we're providing individualized care in a true home environment that offers our residents freedom, choice and purpose."

"You won't see any nurses' stations or medicine carts. Residents are in control of their day, including what time they get up, what and when they eat, their activities for the day and when it's time to turn in for the night," Spitler explains. "We have a new approach based on the Person-Centered Care philosophy. As a resident, you're no longer living in our facility. Instead, we're working in your home."

The Deupree Cottages are part of the Deupree House campus, a popular, independent living retirement community bordering Hyde Park, also operated by Episcopal Retirement Homes. The two new Cottages are connected by a sunroom on the two-acre site and each has 12 private rooms, including two suites. Both Cottages feature a spacious open kitchen, a great room with fireplace, a dining room, den, and even a spa for whirlpool baths complete with fireplace, soft lighting and a flat screen TV.

"When people first walk into the Cottages, they can't believe they're in a skilled nursing facility," says Emerson Stambaugh, Administrator of the Deupree Cottages. "They look like charming, comfortable homes. The design and furnishings are totally out of their realm of thinking about what a nursing home could be."

"People automatically assume that a place like this would be extremely expensive, but actually the cost is in line with other top quality nursing homes in the area," Stambaugh adds.

The opening of the Deupree Cottages culminates a five-year effort by Episcopal Retirement Homes to find a better, more personalized approach to nursing care for older adults.

"The results have exceeded even our own expectations," Spitler says. "In the Cottages you're at home, not in a home. You really have to see them to believe it."
